Transfer Students:

Students applying for transfer from other universities or colleges are subject to Memorial’s Continuance and Readmission regulations. Accordingly, each student’s academic standing at other previous or current institutions must be considered. For this reason, official final transcripts from all other institutions attended must be submitted, regardless of whether transfer of credit is sought or expected.

To apply for mature student status, you must be 21 years of age or older. You will be required to submit proof of age; two letters of reference from persons competent to assess your ability to proceed with university studies; a letter outlining the grounds for requesting special consideration; and high school marks and marks from post-secondary institutions, if applicable. For more information please contact the Registrar's Office.
You can find more information about applying as a mature student in the university calendar​.​​​​

Required documents to submit:
  • Interim transcript (official or unofficial) at the time of application if courses are in progress
